With the smartphone and tablet user in mind, Sony Electronics has developed the new USM-SA1 USB drive which possesses dual micro USB and USB ports to offer consumers a brand new user experience, in addition to providing them with more options to backup, share and store their favourite photos, videos and music.
Available in capacities of 8GB, 16GB and 32GB, this new ultra-compact device gives users a smart and convenient way to transfer and share files easily between devices, and is especially handy in situations such as when backing up the data on your mobile device to a desktop, or when files such as images and video clips need to be shared quickly amongst several individuals – all without the need for a Wi-Fi connection or a USB cable.
Compatible with PCs and Android smartphones and tablets, the USM-SA1 USB drive can also function as an additional media content storage device that can be easily plugged in and detached, so users can now carry with them their entire library of songs and listen to it across various devices, saving the memory space on their devices for other uses.
Housed in a durable metal body and a strap hole to either loop onto a keychain or hung from your mobile phone as a phone charm, the USM-SA1 comes with a smart protective cap that not only protects the micro USB port from damage, but also locks on to the USB drive’s body for easier unplugging from the PC.
Users can also download the dedicated “File Manager” application for free on Google Play onto their smartphones and tablets, to help manage the content across their different devices with ease. Featuring a simple and easy-to-use interface, the searching for, copying, deleting and sorting of content is now a breeze and fuss-free.
Available in white, black and purple, the USM-SA1 USB drive will be available at all Sony stores and authorised outlets from 23 December 2013, at these recommended retail prices:
For more product details:
Based on the product site description and step by step guide, it looks easy to use and even has a smart lock feature.
Oh and a dedicated free app for Android users to download.
Pretty cool and cute, not sure if it comes with a free lanyard or not.
If it does, it’ll come in handy. If not, at least you could hook it onto your keychain or something.
As for pricing, it’s cheaper than those I’ve seen on Q0010 and likely will make a good last minute Christmas gift, since it’ll be here 2 days before Christmas
